The NBA’s annual All-Star Weekend is always full of exciting moments, but arguably the most spectacular event each year is the Slam Dunk Contest. A handful of players from around the league put together flashy and creative dunks in order to impress a panel of judges enough to become the champion.

Dunks can get a maximum score of 50 from the judges, and eventual winner Hamidou Diallo got a perfect score on just his second dunk in the contest. The Oklahoma City Thunder rookie leapt over the head of Hall of Famer Shaquille O’Neal and still got his arm all the way into the basket.

For reference, O’Neal is 7-foot-1.

Dennis Smith Jr. of the New York Knicks needed a few tries to get it right, but he also got a perfect score on his last dunk of the night. He jumped over one eventual Hall of Famer in Dwyane Wade and caught a pass from another in Steph Curry for a spectacular slam.

One of Smith’s other highlight dunks involved rapper J. Cole. Smith donned J. Cole’s high school basketball jersey and caught a vertical pass from the rapper before slamming it through the basket.

Charlotte Hornets rookie Miles Bridges also got a 50 in the first round, courtesy of a pass from teammate Kemba Walker that bounced off the backboard before Bridges did a full 360 rotation on the dunk.

Meanwhile, John Collins of the Atlanta Hawks had a distinctive dunk in which he brought out several man dressed as Tuskegee Airmen. He jumped over a model airplane for the dunk, but it was not enough to make it out of the first round.
